The life changing magic of tidying up

Stay with me here.

Now that you're going to be spending more time in your home, you're rapidly going to find out what you like and dislike about it.

Now, you absolutely can use your down time to change it up for the better, and one way of doing it is to follow the teachings of Marie Kondo and her KonMari method.

Marie, who wrote The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up (kindle edition linked), through a methodical process, helps people tidy up their homes, and in a roundabout way, their minds too.

I actually followed the process and though it took up about 3 days of my whole life, and an entire floorspace of my office and landing, it really helped me focus on what I wanted from the space around me, and led me to donating, selling and chucking out a lot of things that I truly didn't need.

"The KonMari Method™ encourages tidying by category – not by location – beginning with clothes, then moving on to books, papers, komono (miscellaneous items), and, finally, sentimental items. Keep only those things that speak to the heart, and discard items that no longer spark joy. Thank them for their service – then let them go."

The lady herself can explain it, and her youtube channel runs you down her particular folding methods, which take some getting used to, but are generally more ergonomic - even for our work polo shirts!

ANNNNND if all of that seems like too much hard work, you may enjoy Sarah Knight's parody - The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k.
